Emergency services attending fire in Littlehampton
Time Added- 05:44
reports are coming in of a fire in flats at South Terrace, Littlehampton with persons reportedly trapped on roof.
 
UPDATE
Time: 10:02
Location: SOUTH TERRACE, LITTLEHAMPTON
Incident: SEVEN RESCUED IN LITTLEHAMPTON FLATS FIRE
Firefighters have rescued seven adults and a dog after fire broke out in the stairwell of their flats in Littlehampton early this morning. Three people were treated for smoke inhalation and one of them was taken to hospital.
Five calls were made to Command & Mobilising Centre of West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service shortly after 5am on Saturday 3rd Sept. Residents had been woken by the fire alarm sounding but several of the callers said they were trapped in their flats and unable to get out because of the heat and thick black smoke in the communal staircase. The premises are a four storey terraced building in South Terrace on Littlehampton seafront which have been converted into flats with a single staircase. Callers also informed Fire Control Operators whereabouts in the building they were trapped so this information could be passed on to the crews who were attending.
When the first crew from Littlehampton arrived they were faced with an elderly lady on a first floor balcony and a male on the roof, and crew members who went to the rear of the property found two males, two females and a dog perched on a first floor roof.
Additional crews were requested including an Aerial Ladder Platform [ALP] from Worthing.
Fire crews forced an entry through the communal front door and breathing apparatus crews began to search for further casualties and tackle the fire. The four people and dog at the rear of the property were rescued via ladder, and the man trapped on the roof was rescued from the roof by the ALP. Two other residents were led to safety once smoke had cleared.
The fire was located in the basement level of the staircase and extinguished but it had caused extensive smoke damage throughout the staircase.
The cause is now being investigated although it is believed to have started in the basement area of the staircase close to a rear door, and accidental ignition by smoking materials has not been ruled out.
